Our staff is always available to discuss the options of pre-planning your funeral final wishes.

We also endorse a prearranged funeral program permitting advance funding of funeral arrangements. This is called a pre-paid funeral trust which, by Florida law, freezes the funeral home's costs at today's prices. Our trust program is through the Independent Funeral Directors of Florida, and monitored by the Florida Department of Banking and Finance. One hundred percent of monies paid to us are trusted, not seventy percent or eighty or so on. Once executed, you receive your copy of the trust, and a copy is forwarded to the State of Florida. At any time should you need to cancel the contract, such as you move away, all monies, one hundred percent of them, will be returned to you. As far as funding, that is entirely up to you. Some of our clients prefer to pay it all at once, while some prefer to make a down payment, and then continue the funding with monthly, or quarterly payments. Whatever is comfortable with you is what we can do. There is no minimum required, and if you should miss a month, there is no penalty.

We invite you to call us. We will answer any questions necessary, or, you may fill out our pre-arrangement form by clicking on the link below. And of course, we encourage you to call the Florida Department of Banking and Finance at 800-323-2627,  to check on our practices or, for that matter, any firm you select.
